Kangtega, North Face, New Route. From May 20-28, Valeri Babanov established a new line on the north face of Kangtega (6799m). His efforts ended at 6600 meters on the northwest ridge, where he connected to a line climbed by a Japanese team in 1979. A full account of his climb appears earlier in this journal.
